It feels like everyone has been eagerly awaiting the release of Frozen 2. My five year old daughter is obsessed with the first movie and for the past few months has repeatedly asked me "How long now 'til the movie?" The children went to see it yesterday and had the best time; E has been singing Into The Unknown since!

To celebrate the release of the movie, we were lucky to receive a Frozen 2 blogging box from Flair Toys containing a few items from the new toy range. Inside the (very exciting) box we found a Disney Frozen 2 Magic Ice Sleeve, a Disney Frozen 2 Ice Walker and a Whisper and Glow doll. You can take a look at E's unboxing here.

First up, we had to open the super cute little Anna doll. It is a mini doll so it's perfect for little hands. To activate the doll, you simply blow over the tiny hole on the top of the doll and it will light up. Each time you blow on it, it will change colour! 

There are 11 different characters to collect and although E does love Anna, I think we will have to try and collect the rest. They are very cute and I think they'd make for lovely stocking fillers this year. They retail at £5.99 each. 

E was eager to try out the Ice Walker next and of course she had to be dressed as Elsa to do so. You  get one Ice Walker inside the box which attaches over your shoe. It does require 3 AAA batteries which are not included so be sure to have some so you don't have unhappy children!

Once batteries are inserted, you pop it over your shoe using the elastic strap and once it's secured you're ready to go. The sensor is activated by the movement of your foot so once your foot hits the ground the imagine of snowflakes are projected onto the ground.

The strap can be tightened or loosened to fit any shoe and it went on E's trainer perfectly. She thought it was a lovely addition to her Elsa costume and wig and made her feel a bit more authentic. This retails at £29.99 which I do find a bit expensive for what it is and does but in the run up to Christmas I'm sure you will be able to find it a little cheaper.

Finally, the piéce de resistance - the Magic Ice Sleeve. This is the one that both myself and E were excited about trying out. The Magic Ice Sleeve comes with a sleeve that goes onto your child's arm first and can be held on using a loop over the middle finger. The detailing on this is beautiful and very reminiscent of movie Elsa's outfit. 

Similarly to the Ice Walker, the sleeve is fastened on using an elastic strap and the shape of the sleeve means it is comfortable to rest your arm in. You get both a magic ice can and a refillable water bottle. Both of these can be used in the sleeve so if you end up running out of the silly string one, you don't lose any play. You can buy the refills for around £10 too.

To play with the magic ice can, you need to shake it vigorously for around 15 seconds, remove the lid and clip it underneath the arm with the red dot (found on the top of the can) facing upwards. You then pull the triangle part over the hand gently as this is what will activate the spray. Once it is in place, you tilt your fingers upwards to push up on the triangular part. This, in turn, hits the edge of the can, releasing the silly string. You can see E's reaction to the first time we did it in the video below.

The Magic Ice Sleeve is so much fun and E was in fits of laughter playing with it. It is recommended for outdoor use but with weather not being on our side, we had to do it indoors. In ended with me having to hoover the wall and ceilings so if you are using it indoors, be careful with your stuff! This retails at £29.99 but honestly, I'd pay it over and over for the delight that it's brought E.

All of the Flair Frozen 2 toys can be found at B&M and Smyths Toys Superstores.
